Ingredients

  • 140 g All Purpose Flour (can use Self Rising Flour and omit baking powder)
  • 30 g Slow Churn Vanilla Protein Powder or Vegan Vanilla Protein Powder of your Choice
  • 30 g Red Velvet Protein Cookie Butter Powder
  • 10 g Unsweetened Baking Cocoa
  • 6 g Zero Cal Sweetener of your choice
  • 4 g Ground Cinnamon
  • 8 g Baking Powder
  • 227 g Plain Non Fat Greek Yogurt
  • 28 g Light Butter
  • 50 drops Red Food Coloring
  • Instructions

    1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Add all your cinnamon roll dough ingredients into your food processor and pulse till all is combined. Add to a bowl and add to fridge for 20 minutes to cool.
    2. While dough is cooling, make your filling/frosting by add all your ingredients into your food processor and process till you have smooth consistency. You’ll probably have to stop and scrape the sides a few times to make sure all is combined. Add to fridge to cool and thicken up.
    3. Now that your dough has cooled, lightly flour your rolling surface (I use an extra large one!), add your dough and then sprinkle a little bit more flour on top.
    4. Now roll out your dough into a rectangle about 0.5in thick.
    5. Add your your frosting into onto your roll cover it all. This does not have to be too thick of a layer.
    6. Carefully roll your cinnamon roll. I use a bread scraper to help with the rolling. They are like $6 and are a life saver for making anything with dough.
    7. Once your cinnamon roll is formed, slice into 9 equal size cinnamon rolls.
    8. Spray your 6.5 cast iron skillet with non stick cooking spray and then evenly add your rolls to it. Add to the oven for 22 minutes.
    9. Once done, let cool for 10 minutes. Then add your frosting on top, some homemade red velvet cake pieces and then enjoy!
